(laughter). but ultimately, the true measure of last night was not the volume of the crowd or how deeply people were moved. no, it was the twittering. yes, the thunderous applause shook the rafters, but what did hornyham berger69 tweet to his bros? fortunately when it comes to social media the news media have their cyber fingers on the info net youth pulse. poke me, jim. >> our tweets per minute convention hall of fame it was michelle obama who is setting a record with 28,000 tweets per minute. >> something like 28,000 tweets per minute at a speech compared to mitt romney's peak at 14,000. >> w

of mass destruction were never found in iraq. good his foreign policy centered on going into iraq and getting rid of those weapons of mass destruction was alive. his administration showed remarkable indifference to the plight of most americans. what happened in new orleans and katrina is a good example. mitt romney and the republicans would like to pretend the and ministration did not happen. taking a five trillion $10-year surplus bequeaths to it by the clinton administration and turning into a a giant new deficit and saying to wall street, do whatever you want. we are not going to look at you. he makes the case against mitt romney. that is one of the most important things. and with that kind of cynicism, the special interests to win everything. the only thing we can get our democracy back is if we understand we have got to be active, and it is not just paying taxes and serving on juries and showing up. we have got to be engaged, mobilize, energized. we have got to demand this work for us as ordinary people, as average working americans who need an economy working for us, not jus

possibility was that it was a targeted assassination. they are looking into the family's background in iraq. the police have spent hours today talking to other holidaymakers searching through the camp site, trying to find any clue that might explain what has happened. so what do we know? the family left the camp site yesterday around lunchtime. they drove their bmw from the small town along a tourist route through the forest. the next we know is that just before 4:00 local time, their car was found by a british cyclist. inside were the bodies of the three adult members of the family. outside -- the older daughter was found seriously injured. the body of a local man was also discovered. it is thought he might have been shot because he happened to witness the killings. police sealed off the area, and it was only when forensic teams arrived from paris eight hours later that the four-year-old girl was found in the car, hiding under her dead mother's legs. the little girl was deeply upset and traumatized, says the local prosecutor. she has asked for her family. we need to help her and her older
years ago, i was leaving for iraq. i asked the delegates and american people to be there for my dad and they were, but really what i am going to talk about tonight is how he has been there for them, how he has been an incredible, exceptional leader in this country, a partner with the president. >> you served a year in iraq even as your dad was vice president. >> that's right. in fact, i will talk about him visiting iraq when i was there fourth of july 2009. >> you were with delaware national guard? >> i was. i'll give you a preview. he did a naturalization ceremony. whether they're in a federal district courthouse in america or even move moving in iraq. you see people put on our uniform, put their name on their chest and u.s. army and fight for a country they're not even citizens of. >> have you been talking to your dad about what he will say during the 9:00 p.m. eastern hour tonight? >> he is going to talk about what an exceptional commander in chief the president has been, how he has a bird's eye view, a partnership with this president. look, there's no one that's been closer to t

who come back from iraq and afghanistan, i see my grandfather, who signed up after pearl harbor, marched in patton's army, and was rewarded by a grateful nation with the chance to go to college on the g.i. bill. in the face of that young student, who sleeps just three hours before working the night shift, i think about my mom, who raised my sister and me on her own while she worked and earned her degree, who once turned to food stamps, but was still able to send us to the best schools in the country with the help of student loans and scholarships. [applause] when i -- when i listen to another worker tell me that his factory has shut down, i remember all those men and women on the south side of chicago who i stood by and fought for two decades ago after the local steel plant closed. and when i hear a woman talk about the difficulties of starting her own business or making her way in the world, i think about my grandmother, who worked her way up from the secretarial pool to middle management, despite years of being passed over for promotions because she was a woman. she's the one
and not for the worse. >> i was worried that the troops coming back from iraq and afghanistan were going to get ignored. myself and several friends, vietnam guys, we decided we were going to step up for the last eight and a half years i've been making sure that when the folks come home not only are they welcomed but that they are taken care of. we focus with the critically injured soldiers coming back to walter reed. when a soldier gets better and starts to think about leaving the hospital for the first time. we like to be the guys to take them out for a steak dinner. it's good to see them go out to society with wound as an injuries and be suck ceaseful -- successful. we take care of things that come up. we help with resumes, interviewing skills, help them meeting up with mentors and support teams. we're vets we know what they are going through. i feel so privileged to have the opportunity to meet these folks. whenever one of these guys tries to thank me. i said you got this all wrong, you are giving me a gift. can i help you. -- i can help you. >> that's me, sir. >> president obama has fought for vete
in iraq and i think that really as the first lady was talking about, we have gotten to know him. and i think has demonstrated the character and the leadership that we need. during this difficult time. >> and why is the race tied? well, i mean, the economy is tough. and it's hard times. and so i think that -- but i think everybody should really take advantage of the privilege that we all have living in this country and do research on the things that matter to them. this is going to be a close election and votes will count. and i grew up hearing it's one person, my father would not have been elected president and we know that was a tremendous choice. people should realize that their vote counts and they should really take advantage and get involved. it's fun. >> caroline kennedy you've studied history the daughter of a president someone close to someone your uncle, ted kennedy who ran for president. the republicans have really tried to paint this president as a socialist practically somebody who just wants government to takeover everything. how do you see the right balance today? in this
, draftsman and worked for a number of clients, including airbus. he came to this country from iraq in 2002, before the u.s. invasion, but no suggestion of anything in his past life so far in iraq. he wasn't involved with politics and no suggestion of sectarian involvement in iraq. his wife was training to be a dentist here. really, the profound sense here is one of shock from the neighbors and all that knew the family but they have been caught up in such awful appalling violence in france. the prosecutors in france are keeping an open mind. there was a french sighlist also found shot at the scene. the french authorities don't know whether it was the cyclist who may have been targeted and the family happened to turn up and were witnesses to that and killed as a result or whether the family were targeted first and the cyclist was a witness and therefore he was killed. at the moment, really no sense at all why this has happened. the only two witnesses to this are the two girls, one of whom is in hospital with three gunshot wounds to her shoulder. the 4 yellow, the youngest one is in a profoun

the war in iraq, refocusing on afghanistan, and eradicating terrorist leaders, including bin laden. >> where mitt romney was willing to turn his back on akron, dayton, and toledo, ohio, the president said, i've got your back. >> president obama believes in a country where billionaires pay their taxes just like their secretaries do. and i can't believe i have to say this in 2012. a country where women get equal pay for equal work. >> this is the president who delivered the security of affordable health care to every single l american in every corner of this country after 90 years of trying. this is the president who ended don't ask don't tell so that love of country, not love of another, determines fitness for service. who made equal pay for equal work the law of the land. >> you know, it's like a football team when you've got this fourth string quarterback, and all of a sudden he comes out and starts throwing touchdowns. why has he been on the bench is my question, duval patrick. >> i've heard him speak before, but the other night, i've never heard him like that. they need to send

governor romney thinks it is a bad thing that the president ended the war in iraq, but let's stick to the central theme of the economy. we need to do more to get the economy back. we inherited the worst economy in 80 years from the republicans and we have been improving in over their objections and their obstruction. we would like to move quicker. when argument is that the republican nominee, because of his private business experience is a superior job creator. if we elect him president, he will use those private-sector skills to bring many more jobs. we have had an experiment in that. he was governor of the state i lived in. if his private sector experience makes him the super hero of job creation, we would have seen that in massachusetts. in fact, the record is that during his term, our job growth was only about 1.4%, a quarter of the national average. we were forty seventh in job growth. in fact, i represented an area in massachusetts proudly. it has been hurt by national economic trends. we want health to get the commuter rail for the northern part of the state. we want to get

was on to some extent the transition with wars in iraq and afghanistan. we quickly got on to the economy. the process of building the work for building the recovery act was monumental and it occurred quite rapidly and i think the one question that i still wrestle with in my mind is, did -- we were in the process of doing a lot of different things and the repeat idaholy with which the recovery act went through and sort of getting away from it i think didn't really help educate the public about what they were likely to experience and what the story line and narrative was. so we kind of -- the administration kind of moved on quickly to other priorities which we had prepared in the administration particularly the health care. in retrospect we didn't have good answers to the housing crisis and we didn't stay on that economic argument about job creation long enough really. >> charlie:back in a moment. stay with us krsmght we continuel analysis. john harris of politico and jeff disel any of the new york times. i'm meesed to of them here. where are we in terms of democratic party having a remark
